Cost of Motorcycle Shipping
The cost of shipping a motorcycle depends on the motorcycle size and weight, shipping distance and type of destination. For most motorcycles, you can expect to pay between $400 and $1,000.
There are some exceptions. For example, if you're shipping a motorcycle to certain areas in New York, it will cost more due to road tolls and access restrictions. Some areas are not accessible to certain shipping trucks due to height restrictions and narrowness of the roads, which increases the shipping cost. The shipping company should tell you if this applies to your shipping request.
